This section aims to facilitate the search for certain existing support measures and aid in the food and wood value chain sector, as well as rural and coastal development. In any case, please remember that this tool does not necessarily centralise or include all the possible existing measures or aid at any given time. Therefore, it is not nor does it intend to be an exhaustive list of all the possible aid from all the organisations or entities that are granting them. Although it tries to keep the information as up to date as possible, given the volume and constant publication of new measures and aid, the HAZI Fundazioa foundation cannot guarantee the permanent updating of the aid and measures that can be checked in this section, nor can it guarantee that any of them may not be in effect at the time of checking it using this tool. This tool is intended solely as an assistance tool and is for information purposes only. In order to find out the access requirements and all the conditions applicable to the respective aid and measures, the HAZI Fundazioa foundation recommends checking the calls and announcements published in the bulletins and official sources of each agency or entity concerned in all cases.
